Family Friendly. Lots of healthy options, though I had the French toast Brioche and son had a kids Chocolate Chip Pancake.Both yummy and filling. Staff was very nice and busy. I didn't feel rushed even though there were people waiting. Nice selection of teas.Enjoyed and would go back again if I was in the area again.

Breakfast all day is what brought us to this bright and tasty restaurant. I was quite surprised at such a large selection of the old favorites as well as healthy choices. I had an egg white omelette full of vegetables that was cooked to perfection. I also like individual coffee pots for each table--what a plus!

First Watch is only open until 2pm. When it first opened I went to the restaurant often. The menu has changed little over the years so I go less often now. The service people are always friendly and the food is consistently good. It is also reasonably priced. They use fresh ingredients in all of their dishes.

We enjoyed our breakfast here quite a bit. Very interesting menu - although the items did not come out quite as exotic as they seemed. But a very good value and some nice options compared to regular breakfast locations.

First Watch has the best breakfast that we've found in Montgomery County -- we chose our hotel in part to be near to it. Perhaps not best for those counting calories, although there are some lower calorie options.

I visited First Watch in Rockville today for the first time (I believe it has been open at this location for 6 months or so). At a little past noon on a Sunday, the place was packed, with a number of folks waiting for 20-30 minutes for a table. We got a nice booth in the back corner. Our server... More

We wanted to try a new place for breakfast while in the Rockville area on October 16. We are glad we chose First Watch. There was a 20 minute wait when we arrived and the place quickly filled up with folks as we were waiting. Good sign that the food was good. I had the Frittata Rustica and my 10... More

During our stay in Rockville, we had breakfast here twice. Our first visit was on a Sunday and the restaurant was very busy; they have a very organized system to seat customers, take orders and serve the food quickly. The service was quick and friendly. One day we each had the Traditional Breakfast; the other day I had the Breakfast... More
